everyday mineral powders

I'm thinking of buying from everyday minerals...but i'm unsure of what the duties /extra costs are to ship to Canada from the U.S. Has anyone ordered before? How much does it cost and is it worth the extra money? Thanks!

This was awhile ago...

I have bought from them before maybe like 3 years ago but looking at the site now it seems similar in terms shipping.

I bought maybe $15 worth of product and it cost under $5 to ship to Canada with First Class international USPS. I didn't get charged with any customs.

My understanding is that packets that go through regular mail via USPS to Canada Post is less likely to incur Duties and Taxes. Also for items that are worth less then $60 total (I believe this is only for gifts) but I've kept a lot of my purchases from the states to under $60 and I've never had to pay duty.

I would say if you're not buying a lot I doubt you will be charged duty if you choose the USPS option for shipping. (they ship fedex too but you are guaranteed to be hit with a brokerage fee, I don't know how much that would be but I've heard it's expensive).
